During the past six years, I've produced four different BBQ competition shows on cable. OLN, VS, and TLC. But on May 28th at 2pm, we're launching a pure BBQ comp. on broadcast television-CBS SPORTS- and early estimates tell us the viewership could be the single largest TV audience ever to watch a strict competition BBQ show. CBS and Kingsford gave us total freedom here. For me, this represents a return to what I love about my first shows: straight BBQ categories, NO STUNTS, a legitimate judging panel (Master Judge Mike Lake for God's sakes!), and proven Pitmasters with their smokers, bantering with each other. Having just screened the premiere's rough cut, I can say it's our liveliest, most authentic show to date. And what's even better, I KNOW I'll be getting to hear what y'all think! So, tonight on FoodTV, enjoy that tofu-chasing smoke-a-rama in Brooklyn's Amazing Race/BBQ premiere. But be with us and CBS Sports May 28th.... JM, Exec. Producer
